Preliminary Informal Public Input Sought on Proposed Corporation Requirement for Criminal Background Checks

 

The Corporation for National and Community Service invites public input regarding a Corporation requirement that grantees conduct and document criminal background checks on grant-funded employees and participants who, on a recurring basis, have access to children and other vulnerable populations, including the elderly and individuals with disabilities.  In addition, the Corporation seeks input concerning whether any category of individuals should, on the basis of their criminal histories, be disqualified from working or participating in a Corporation-funded project in which they have such access.  Click here to read the federal register notice.

We will consider input submitted in writing or orally in one of two conference calls we will hold on the dates listed below.  The Corporation will not respond formally to this input, but will consider it in drafting any Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.  The public will have a separate opportunity to provide formal comment on any proposed rule the Corporation publishes for comment in 2005 or thereafter.

The Corporation will hold conference calls on this topic on October 21st and October 28th, 2005.
